OK quick history from me! Had TBI 13 years ago. Can't remember anything about it. I had front part of skull temporarily taken away for swelling, coma for 3 weeks, in hospital for 3 months, rehab still happening now. I feel like two people, me before and me after my injury. I've changed a lot in many ways.
I close friend of mine is a psychotherapist and does hypnotherapy with her clients. She talks of how the memories of what happened to me that night are in my mind and she is able to access them with me if I would like to. I actually *really* would like to. I feel as though there's a huge gap between before my injury and afterwards. I wonder whether learning what happened - I fell down some steps - would lessen the gap and make it easier to live with.
I spoke to my counsellor who specialises in brain injury. She is doubtful though. She says that in all her experience (many years) she has never heard of hypnotherapy being beneficial in someone who had a TBI "as severe as yours". She feels that the memories will no longer exist and that maybe if I *do* attempt to retrieve them then they will not necessarily be accurate.
So my question to you guys out there is - have any of you experienced hypnotherapy since your TBI and found any use in it? I'd love to know your experiences if you have X
